Responding to the need of creating job opportunity for the youth and reducing graduate unemployment in Ghana, Agri-lmpact has teamed up with the National Service Scheme to introduce the Youth Entrepreneurship and Skills Enhancement Program (YESEP) aimed at providing unparalleled technical opportunities to graduates to build their technical, managerial and vocational capacities to fit into the job market and be better equipped to take advantage of business opportunities in the agribusiness and SME landscape to become entrepreneurs, employers and employees along the agribusiness value chain.
As part of building their technical competence, management of Agri-Impact Consult and the National Service Personnel’s under program paid a working visit to Dorothy Kani Company Limited, one of the leading Orange Fleshed Sweet Potato bread processing factory in Ghana. DKCL is an establishment under the 1D1F initiative with funding from the Ghana EximBank.
The personnel’s were taken through the operationalization process and production protocols of the company. Five out of the fifty National service personnel’s will be assigned to the factory to undergo a nine-month industrial training. Furthermore, Agri- impact consult intends to request for 200 to 500 service personnel in the coming years.
Additionally, Agri-Impact will leverage on it long years industrial expertise and partnerships to reassign some of the new graduates to different organisation based on their academic backgrounds after successful completion of the training.
